SILHOUETTE

There’s always a special place in my heart for Israeli filmmakers. I was more than happy to be on board when Adva Reichman, my dear friend and collaborator, wrote & directed a touching, beautiful film – SILHOUETTE- as part of her MFA studies in film directing at USC. In her film, Adva successfully deals with the difficult subject of breast cancer, and finds the right tone and balance for creating a delicate drama that leaves the audience emotionally moved.

SILHOUETTE premiered in May 16′, and I can’t wait too see what Adva will be directing. She is going to be BIG one day.

Aaron Smith – Trumpet
Jen Schwartz – Violin
Mike Lis– Guitar
Ana Barreiro – Drums

Mother, Mother Ocean wins BSTEM Project’s Competition

Our documentary short, ‘Mother, Mother Ocean’ has officially been named WINNER of the BSTEM Project’s competition 2016! Both the judging team’s finalist, and the Audience Award Choice.

The film, created by Jamie Morrow & Christine Kilmer brings to light the issues of single-use plastic: As we go on with our lives, be conscious of the amount of throw-away plastic we use, and how we can avoid them. The health of the ocean is imperative to the health of the planet…
I was happy to be part of the team, both in music & well, it was also my first-on-screen appearance.

Behind The Blinds – the comedy series I had the pleasure to work on, will premiere on Feb 11th 2016. I can’t wait to share it! Created by Anna Skrypka, Charles Ancelle and Adrian Morales Ramos.

The series follows two Eastern European mobsters who decide to produce an independent film to launder money. The comedy soundtrack includes many different styles: Russian traditional themes, romantic moments, Mafia-style threatening music, some tribal music, expressive emotional moments, techno, and more exciting surprises. The score was recorded using LA’s best musicians, including balalaikas and guitars performance by the legendary Andrew Synowiec.
